Netflix is expanding their global reach by plugging into the Australasian market in March 2015. The internet streaming giant announced the plan to expand to Australia and New Zealand, promising that movies and TV shows will be available in high-definition or even 4K. “Orange is the new Black”, “House of Cards”, “Marco Polo”, “BoJack Horseman” and DreamWorks Animation’s “All Hail King Julien” are some of Netflix’s original series to be offered.
The company said in a statement that “internet-connected users … will be able to subscribe to Netflix and instantly watch a curated selection of popular movies and TV shows in high-definition or even 4K where available.”
Details about pricing, programming and supported devices will be revealed at a later date. Netflix is now officially serving over more than 50 countries with high quality shows and flicks. Marvel is really starting to show some serious teeth with some super small screen adaptations heading to Netfilx. “Daredevil”, “Jessica Jones”, “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” is expected to storm Netflix viewers in 2015. Geeks in Australia and New Zealand have much to celebrate; it seems the Super Rugby weekends have some competition next year!
